Samsung has also reiterated their development plans for enterprise V-NAND drives, though as usual they are being a bit less precise in discussing their plans. The PM1725, Samsung's PCIe card SSD, will be utilizing 3rd gen V-NAND, combining 8 lanes to offer what is expected to be 1 million read IOPS.
Yet we continually read tales of file based APIs being the proper way to go???? It's getting to look more and more like The Dark Ages for compute/quant. Sigh.
